Which side did the Norwegians fight in Syria?

Norwegian and other Scandinavian volunteers who participated in the Syrian conflict, fought "on the Russian side," being part of the armed formations fighting against terrorists, reports bmpd with reference to the Norwegian resource AldriMer.no.




The Scandinavian unit operated in Syria "in the winter, spring, and summer of the 2017 of the year."

In the spring, we launched an offensive and were often in direct contact with the enemy during the daytime, and when it became dark at night,
told one of the soldiers to the resource.

According to him, volunteers took orders from the Russian armed forces and were part of the military structure of Russia in the SAR.

Our unit was integrated into the Russian armed forces. After all, since 2015, Russia has asked Syrian President Bashar Assad to allow participation in the war against the globally dangerous fundamentalist terrorist group IG (banned in the Russian Federation). When such a big country entered the war, the world saw that in fact it could overcome terror. From spring 2016 of the year to the end of 2017, the balance in the conflict zone has changed completely. Russia cut the back of the igilovtsy in Syria, and we fought with the Russians shoulder to shoulder,
told the fighter.



He describes his unit as “motorized infantry”, which, however, also “had access to tanks and heavy weapons. ”

According to the volunteer, the unit was most active for the first three months, “the focus was on gathering intelligence information and determining enemy locations, the number of infantry of the IG and the method of warfare in the area of ​​Syria where the unit was involved”.

Which side did the Norwegians fight in Syria?


We were required to move beyond the front line and work in secret, under cover of night. Often, we used drones to gather the right information. Then we could plan how the unit could capture the most important control points controlled by the IS,
he said.

It is also alleged that the Scandinavians received Russian artillery support when they went to capture the camp of terrorists last summer:

In the dark we crawled pretty close to the camp. Our task was to determine the number of IS soldiers, what is their weapon and, if possible, direct and correct the artillery fire of the Russian forces, which were at a distance of a shot. It was a fairly large camp, there were about 50 IG fighters, several tanks and all-terrain vehicles.


The commander decided to ask for fire support.

A little later, the camp was already burning. The warehouse caught fire and exploded. Boxes of ammunition exploded, exploding shells. Approximately half of the igilovtsy survived the shelling, but when they came out of all this chaos, you would see them ...


According to the soldier, the commander ordered the killing of running militants.

Those enemies that survived and were able to move independently, tried to escape. The commander ordered the unit to prevent escapes. The order was executed exemplary,
he said.

    Scandinavians fought on the Russian side? Somehow I can hardly believe it. There is also a link to bmpd, which is an unofficial and informal blog published under the auspices of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (AST Center), the same is in doubt.

      I agree, I can hardly believe it, and it reads, as if some kind of agitation! Especially finish off the Igilovites), but if this is true, then well done. So on the Norwegians it is already possible to put an end to, a third of the country are emigrants, a third of gays. The emigrants must have fought!

          Scandinavians fought on the Russian side?

          not against the Russian, but against the terrorists, and the most surprising, if all this is not nonsense, they realized that without interaction with the videoconferencing, and subordination can not do -

      here it is necessary to rejoice that at least someone from the Western world is not afraid to fight with the Russians shoulder to shoulder.
      I hope that the rest of Norway will see soon

        Vikings ... Have a right to historical pride. Convinced nationalists (in the normal sense of the word are white, Christians, descendants of heroic epics ...), most likely.
        Norwegian and other Scandinavian volunteers who participated in the Syrian conflict fought “on the Russian side”

        The key word in the article is volunteers.
        It’s not worth it once again to show double standards, otherwise it turns out that if a fighter from the Western world fights, according to his convictions, for LDNR in the Donbass, then he is a volunteer, and if in Syria, then he is hired?
        Sense to cheat?

          The only difference between a "volunteer" and a mercenary is that a "volunteer" when hiring, as a rule, adheres to political, religious, or racial preferences. In this case, most likely, it was religious and racial factors that played a role.

            Those. fighting for beliefs. And what is this bad? Such and the political system can change.
            The Normans once conquered all of Europe.
            In general, draw an analogy with the Donbass: a small national group, with Russian weapons, with a demonstration of their national flag, operating as part of the armed forces. Volunteers
            It is unlikely that mercenaries will display their national flag.
            It seems that new personnel are being forged to eliminate the Islamic horde in Europe.
            National self-awareness is not a "flexible policy", once patience comes to an end. Especially absurd multiculturalism and tolerance.

          mercenaries are unlikely, they pay a pair well, a maximum of five heels of mowing greens.
          Norway sn more.
          and idealists are everywhere. the same Norwegians are fighting in large numbers in the Donbas on the side of the kaklov. and they’re not fighting for money, because kakly such money as sn in Norway will not even pay to Remba. in the Donbass, Norwegians Natsik are fighting for kaklov, Norwegians Eurasians can fight in Syria.

      "They fight where they pay" ////

      They made fun ... In their Norway, they would get wipers
      more than mercenaries in Syria.
      For the salaries of the PMCs Wagner, none of the Western mercenaries
      I wouldn’t even wear shoes.
      So, the Norwegians wanted to “rock the old days - the Vikings”, to warm up the bones.

      You fought ????????????????? Are you probably joking and deliberately misleading the audience? The Kurds prepared by the CIA appeared on the horizon when? When the ridge of cutthroats was already broken by Russia, and their complete defeat loomed ahead. They made us too angry. And basically these "Europeans" in the SDF camps were instructors of the special forces of the NATO countries, to perform certain tasks for the interests of their states, but not in the interests of the Syrian people in the fight against ISIS. It’s important to tear apart Israel like them the territory of Syria, and not to allow its restoration. This article is another idle talk from the yellow tabloid press. As part of the American PMCs operating there, I can still imagine them, as part of the Russian special forces, even if indirectly, in no way.

        The capital of ISIS in Syria was the city of Raqqa.
        The racca was surrounded and stormed after the siege precisely by the Kurds who were helped
        the Americans.

        Russia and Iran helped the Syrians take the largest city
        Syria - Aleppo. But there was no ISIS - only local
        Islamists and pro-Turkish militants.

          the Kurds began to defeat when the Russians broke the ridge of the Ishilovites.
          and the man correctly said - the mattresses saw that the igil project failed and they changed their shoes and made a bet on the Kurds. the Kurds began to be helped by the Igiloids, slowly forced to give up Kurds positions and put up more resistance to Assad.
          it was the same with the Germans at the end of the war when they fought with the Russians to the last. and in the west they rented whole areas. although, like Yigil, they also waged a war. only the scale of the paragraph is different.

    Norwegian and other Scandinavian volunteers who took part in the Syrian conflict fought “on the Russian side”, being part of armed groups fighting against terrorists ...

    I wouldn’t know the nature, but I never felt hostility either to Norway or to its inhabitants, for while serving on the Kola Peninsula I saw both the reverent attitude of these harsh people towards nature and the courteous attitude to the burial places of both Soviet and German soldiers (from you won’t throw out the facts of the facts), and conscientious attitude to work (road teams marking the Murmansk-Rayakoski highway, and fishermen who came to the waterfalls ... The Norwegians were very upset that the church territory was used for other purposes. .. request
